complete renova�on of the 6,300-squarefoot McCormick Wrestling Complex in 2000. The training area includes a fitness and cardio room and a separate team lounge with video equipment. The Bison Sports Arena measures 320 feet wide and 48 feet high. Its 150,639 square feet of space is divided into three levels. A main floor of 102,000 square feet includes a wood basketball floor and an all-weather ar�ficial surface for basketball games, track meets, wrestling meets, tennis and volleyball matches. Offices, lockers and classrooms are

also located on the main floor including a well-equipped training room with a walk-in whirlpool bath. The second-level ac�vity deck includes racquetball courts, the McCormick Wrestling Complex, and an extensive weight room. The third-level press box and storage area complete the indoor floor plan.


onstructed in 1970 for a cost of $3.1 million, the Bison Sports Arena was built to house the Department of Athle�cs and the Department of Health, Physical Educa�on and Recrea�on. With a sea�ng capacity of up to 6,000 fans for college basketball games and wrestling matches and 2,200 for indoor track and field meets, the Bison Sports Arena has hosted several premier events. The arena hosted NCAA Division II na�onal wrestling championships in 1971, 1976, 1983, 1991 and 1997, many North Central Conference and high school state indoor track and field championships, the first two NCAA Division II na�onal indoor track and field championships, and one NCAA volleyball championship. The Bison Sports Arena also housed the 2008 NCAA Wrestling West Regional, the first postseason Division I wrestling event to be held at NDSU. The Bison wrestlers have the luxury of a first-class prac�ce facility on site. A generous dona�on from Bison wrestling booster John L. McCormick led to the





Head Coach Minnesota State Moorhead, 1964 46th season


hen it comes to North Dakota State, it is nearly impossible to talk about the success of the athle�c programs without the focus of the conversa�on turning to Bucky Maughan. His four na�onal championships, 30 individual NCAA champions, and 17 conference �tles are nearly unrivaled in collegiate athle�cs. Maughan begins his 46th season as the head wrestling coach at NDSU with an overall record of 448-146-13. He now leads the Bison into their third season of Division I compe��on. Since joining the ranks of Division I, Maughan has coached six NCAA qualifiers. Under Maughan’s guidance, the Bison captured NCAA Division II na�onal championships in 1988, 1998, 2000, and 2001, while finishing as the na�onal runner-up six �mes (1972, 1982, 1983, 1992, 2002,


and 2004) and placing third six �mes as well (1973, 1984, 1987, 1989, 1993, and 1995). A constant in the Division II na�onal rankings, NDSU had 32 finishes in the top 10, including a string of 15 straight seasons from 1981-1996. The Bison have also finished in the top five 27 �mes since Maughan took over the program in the 1964-65 season. During NDSU’s 40-year affilia�on with the North Central Conference, Maughan helped produce 88 NCC individual champions, including four-�me champs Brian Kapusta and Steve Saxlund. Maughan has coached over 150 All-American wrestlers and two U.S. Olympic team members in Brad Rheingans and John Morgan. In 2003, Maughan received perhaps the highest honor of his impressive career when he was inducted into the Na�onal Wrestling Hall of Fame. He was also inducted into the Division II Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1997, being joined by Bill Demaray and Rheingans, two of Maughan’s na�onal champion wrestlers. A former Minnesota State University Moorhead wrestler, Maughan won two na�onal championships in the same year. He won the 1963 NAIA 123-pound �tle, followed up by capturing the NCAA Division I 115-pound championship. The NAIA championship was the second of his career, having also won the 1962 championship. Maughan’s championship days began early while growing up in Canonsburg, Pa. He was a state high school champion and won 70 consecu�ve dual matches during his high school career. He has also stayed ac�ve on the administra�on side as well, serving �me as a member of the execu�ve commi�ee of the Na�onal Wrestling Coaches Associa�on and is also a former president of the NCAA Division II Coaches Associa�on. Maughan and his wife, Leota, are the parents of two sons who also have wrestling in their blood. Jack was a two-�me Division II All-American wrestler at North Dakota State and was the head wrestling coach at Western Wrestling Conference rival Northern Colorado for 20 years before stepping down prior to the 2009-10 season. Bret was a two-�me All-American as well as a na�onal runnerup at 118 pounds for the Bison in 1991 and is beginning his ninth season as assistant coach to his father at North Dakota State.

SEASONPREVIEW Young Bison squad looks to contend in tough WWC


The 2009-10 North Dakota State wrestling team will look to improve on last year’s 5-10-1 overall record and 2-4 mark in Western Wrestling Conference ac�on. “It’s the beginning of a new era,” said head coach Bucky Maughan. “We’re not an established Division I power, so it’s been hard trying to get those elite recruits, however, we are making progress and will be able to turn things around.” Maughan has nine true freshmen on this year’s squad, along with five redshirt freshmen. The Bison graduated two starters in Adam Aho and Gabriel Mooney, but will look to lone senior Ryan Adams, a two-�me NCAA qualifier, to lead the team this year. The Bison also return seven regular starters from last year’s squad. Maughan is excited about the addi�on of Roger Kish to the coaching staff. Kish was a two-�me All-American and NCAA runnerup at Minnesota before gradua�ng in 2008. “He was a great college wrestler out of one of the country’s top programs and has brought in some new training methods,” said Maughan. “He’s a great help, especially in the upper weights. Since he’s from Michigan, he’s also helping to expand our recrui�ng area.” Last year, the process for qualifica�on into the NCAA championships changed. Wrestlers now are ranked on a power index, which takes into account the number of ranked wrestlers performed against as well as the results of those matches. The same system, with minor tweaks, will also be in place this year. The Bison will have plenty of chances to improve their shot at the NCAA Championships due to the challenging slate the coaches have put together. NDSU will face off against Big 12 champion Nebraska as well as Pac-10 champion Boise State this year. Both teams finished the 2008-09 season ranked in the top 10. “This schedule is extremely demanding and we made it as tough as we could,” said Maughan. “We have to wrestle quality opponents in order to help our athletes in their quest for na�onals.”


 Sophomore Jus�n Solberg returns a�er a successful freshman campaign in which he earned All-Western Wrestling Conference third team honors.

Over the course of the season, the Bison will wrestle four teams from the Pac-10, two CAA teams, and one team apiece from the MAC, ACC and Big 12. The Bison will kick off the season with the Daktronics Open Nov. 7 and the Bison Open Nov. 14. NDSU will also compete in the Kaufman-Brand Open and the Dragon Open before star�ng dual ac�on. The Bison will host the Dakota Duals on Dec. 13 and wrestle against Northern Illinois, Oregon State and MSU Moorhead. A�er winter break, the team will hit the road for most of January, traveling all across the country. On Jan. 3, the squad will travel to Lincoln, Neb. and take on North Carolina State as well as host Nebraska. The Bison will then head to California for matches against Cal State Fullerton and Cal Poly. The team will then compete against Boise State in Bozeman, Mont. on Jan. 15. Western Wrestling Conference ac�on will begin with a match at Northern Colorado on Jan. 17. The Bison will then travel to the Northeast for matches against Boston University and Sacred Heart. The Bison will host Air Force on Jan. 31 and Wyoming on Feb. 7 in WWC matches and then travel to Northern Iowa, the defending conference champion, on Feb. 14. NDSU will close out the regular season at home against South Dakota State Feb. 18. The NCAA West Regional will be held in Brookings, S.D. on March 6.

125 pounds

 Junior Kenny Moenkedick will lead the Bison at 184 pounds this year. He went 16-11 last season.

Sophomore Jus�n Solberg will look to con�nue the success he had at the end of last season. He finished third at the NCAA West Regional a�er pos�ng a 4-2 record in dual meets. Solberg could also poten�ally wrestle at 133 pounds. Freshmen Phil Levine, an NHSCA All-American, and

SEASONPREVIEW Jake Love, a three-�me Montana state runner-up, will also compete at 125 pounds.

133 pounds

The Bison will look to sophomore Trent Sprenkle at 133 pounds. Sprenkle spent most of last season at 125 pounds, before moving up to 133 at the end of January. Sprenkle went 10-17 in his freshman campaign. Redshirt freshman Brian Ham will push Sprenkle. Ham competed in three open tournaments as an una�ached wrestler last year and posted a 6-6 record.

141 pounds

A�er spending his first three years compe�ng at 149 pounds, Ryan Adams will drop a weight class for his senior season. The two�me NCAA qualifier will look to reach the na�onal championships for a third �me. Last year, Adams led the squad with 26 wins. Junior Geoff Mar�n, redshirt freshman Mark Erickson and freshman Trevor Johnson will back up Adams. Mar�n competed at two open tournaments last year, while Erickson competed in three as an una�ached wrestler. Erickson finished second at the Dragon Open. Johnson, the younger brother of 165-pounder Tyler, is a two-�me North Dakota state champion.

 Above: Senior Ryan Adams led the Bison with 26 wins last season. He was also an All-Western Wrestling Conference second team selec�on for the second year running. Le�: Sophomore Trent Sprenkle can compete at either 125 or 133 pounds for the Bison.

2008-09REVIEW Bison finish fifth in Western Wrestling Conference The 2008-09 Bison were a young squad with four freshmen cracking the star�ng lineup. NDSU finished the season with a 510-1 record and a 2-4 mark in the Western Wrestling Conference, good for fi�h place. The team hosted the Bison Open to kick off the season and sophomore Kenny Moenkedick won the squad’s only �tle of the day at 184 pounds. At the Kaufman-Brand Open on Nov. 22, senior Gabriel Mooney took third at 141 pounds and junior Ryan Adams was third at 149 pounds. The Bison opened dual ac�on at the Northern Quad on Nov. 29. A�er shu�ng out Portland State, 36-0, NDSU was beaten, 366, by No. 11 Minnesota. In the final match of the day, NDSU �ed Northern Colorado, 19-19. It was the first �e for the Bison since a 19-19 draw with South Dakota State in the final match of the 2006-07 season. Moenkedick was the only Bison to win all three of his matches. The team then traveled to the Las Vegas Invita�onal where they finished 31st of 44 teams. Dual ac�on resumed as the Bison hosted Dickinson State and No. 2 ranked Iowa State. The Bison dominated Dickinson in a 40-3 win, but were shut out by the Cyclones, 42-0. A�er winter break, the Bison headed east for the Virginia Duals. NDSU opened with a 33-3 loss to Penn before dropping a 35-7 decision to Rider. The team closed out the Virginia duals with a 27-16 loss to Ohio. The Bison returned to Fargo and lost to Augsburg, 22-18. The match was up in the air un�l the 197 bout when Augsburg’s Jared Massey pinned Drew Ross to clinch the win for the Auggies. NDSU was embroiled in another �ght match a week later. A�er tying Northern Colorado earlier in the season, the two teams faced off to open Western Wrestling Conference ac�on this �me. The Bison had a 16-12 lead going into the final bout of the day, but UNC’s Ryan Johnson pinned Moenkedick at 184 pounds to give the

Tyler Johnson came on strong in his freshman year. He earned third-team All-Western Wrestling Conference honors a�er entering the star�ng lineup in January.

Senior Gabriel Mooney reached the 20-win mark for the Bison in 2008-09. He tallied 78 wins in his career at NDSU.


Bears an 18-16 win. The Bison broke a six-match losing streak with a 23-17 win over Air Force before falling to Wyoming, 31-6. Back at the Bison Sports Arena, NDSU defeated crosstown rival Minnesota State Moorhead, 22-17. Later that night, the Bison took on Utah Valley. With the score �ed at 15 apiece going into the heavyweight bout, Utah Valley’s Diego Avalon used a second period takedown to claim a 3-2 victory over Tyler Hemmesch and give the Wolverines an 18-15 win. The Bison then dominated South Dakota State, 36-5, in Brookings. In the final home match of the season, NDSU jumped out to a 17-3 lead on No. 21 Northern Iowa, but the Panthers won the final five bouts en route to a 21-17 win. At the NCAA West Regional, the Bison came in fourth as Adams finished second, while freshmen Tyler Johnson and Jus�n Solberg came in third. Northern Iowa won the �tle for the 27th straight year. Adams just missed out on an automa�c bid to the NCAA championships. He lost the �tle bout to Mitchell Polkowske of Northern Colorado and then fell to Trevor Ki�elson of UNI in the true second place match. Adams earned All-Western Wrestling Conference second team honors for the second straight year, while Johnson and Solberg both earned third team accolades. Ten members of the team were named to the WWC Coaches Honor Roll, which recognizes all student-athletes who have maintained a 3.0 GPA.

The Western Wrestling Conference The Western Wrestling Conference, an NCAA Division I wrestlingonly alliance, will begin its fourth season of compe��on in 2009-10. The WWC sent 13 wrestlers to the 2009 NCAA Wrestling Championships in St. Louis and saw two wrestlers earn All-America honors. Northern Iowa’s Moza Fay earned his second straight honor while Wyoming’s Joe LeBlanc earned his first. The 2009 NCAA West Regional, which was held at Northern Colorado, served as the conference tournament for the third straight season. UNI was crowned the team champion, while Wyoming head coach Mark Branch was named the league’s Coach of the Year. The 2009 NCAA West Regional will be hosted by South Dakota State Universyt. The goal of the league is to replace the West Regional with a conference tournament, which would then serve as the NCAA qualifier. The WWC enjoyed plenty of success in its inaugural year of compe��on, which included sending 19 wrestlers to the 2007 NCAA Wrestling Championships. The first WWC tournament took place under the �tle of NCAA West Regional on March 3 in the McLeod Center on UNI’s campus. The 2007 West Regional served as the first na�onal qualifier for three schools making the move from Division II to Division I. North Dakota State, South Dakota State and Northern Colorado all sent wrestlers to the NCAA Championships for the first �me since reclassifying to Division I. Utah Valley will be eligible for the postseason in 2009-2010.

With league members spread out over six states and two �me zones, schools will only be required to compete against four league schools in dual ac�on to be eligible for the regular season conference championship. Schools will be encouraged to schedule as many conference schools as possible. The WWC recognizes student-athletes on both a weekly and full-season basis. Individual awards include Wrestler of the Week; AllConference; Academic All-Conference; and Wrestler, Newcomer and Coach of the Year awards. The league also crowns a team champion following the conclusion of the regular season conference compe��on and the postseason tournament. The governance of the Western Wrestling Conference will remain primarily with the member ins�tu�ons. Scheduling of contests, assignment of officials and certain media rela�ons func�ons will remain with member ins�tu�ons. One of the major benefits of having a league spread out so far is the added exposure – both in terms of media and recrui�ng - in new des�na�ons. The conference affilia�on is also expected to generate much interest within the seven schools’ substan�al alumni base, which numbers nearly 800,000 combined. Charter members of the Western Wrestling Conference include: the United States Air Force Academy, North Dakota State University, the University of Northern Colorado, the University of Northern Iowa, South Dakota State University, Utah Valley University and the University of Wyoming.

As the Land Grant ideal mandates prepara�on for society’s changes, NDSU is preparing students for and assis�ng business with the global marketplace. The state, na�on and world can expect more in the years to come. NDSU has used these five themes in its transforma�on: “It’s About People,” “Students are Paramount,” “Programs,” “Leveraging Support” and “Stature.” Three qualita�ve principles are being added: “Inclusive,” “Responsive” and “Excellent.” Looking to the future, the university has outlined several goals, including: • NDSU will further raise the caliber of its research enterprise. • NDSU will be among the top 15 computer centers in the world, with compu�ng power approaching 100 teraflops. A teraflop is a compu�ng speed equal to one trillion floating-point opera�ons per second. • NDSU will con�nue to be one of the leading agricultural research programs in the world.

• NDSU will make advancements in the arts, humani�es, health sciences, material science and science, and engineering and mathema�cs educa�onal programs. • NDSU will become one of the top 100 universi�es in the number of Na�onal Merit Scholars enrolled.

NDSU: yesterday and today

The state’s first land-grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educa�onal work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892. Renamed in 1960 as North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science, the ins�tu�on educates students for a mul�tude of career opportuni�es. The university is


orth Dakota State University is a “place of impact” and an ins�tu�on with both success and momentum. With growth to more than 14,000 students and annual research expenditures topping $100 million, NDSU has enjoyed a remarkable period of achievement. Shortly a�er former president Joseph Chapman’s arrival on campus in 1999, he challenged each college and department to advance to the next level. The results have led to increased educa�onal programs, greater research opportuni�es and a growing, prospering university. During this extraordinary decade, NDSU’s growth has meant an addi�onal $1 billion to the state’s economy. There also has been tremendous growth in facili�es in recent years, and two downtown Fargo buildings have joined the NDSU community. The former Pioneer Mutual Building is now Richard H. Barry Hall with offices and classrooms for the College of Business and the Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics. The former Lincoln Na�onal Life Building became Klai Hall and has been renovated into studio space for the Department of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.





comprised of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources; College of Arts, Humani�es and Social Sciences; College of Business; College of Engineering and Architecture; College of Human Development and Educa�on; College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Sciences; College of Science and Mathema�cs; College of University Studies; and College of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. NDSU now offers 44 doctoral programs, 59 master’s programs, an educa�onal specialist degree and eight cer�ficate programs. Students work closely with NDSU’s chemists, engineers, architects, musicians, pharmacists, writers and other respected faculty who frequently are on the leading edge of research in their chosen areas. As of fall 2008, the university had 740 members of its instruc�onal faculty, including 523 who have achieved the highest degrees in their fields. The NDSU’s primary academic campus includes 42 square blocks and 102 university buildings, 11 non-NDSU buildings, nine leased buildings and seven leased spaces, with building, personal and outdoor property insured for a total value of $834 million. In all, NDSU is located on 18,746 acres of North Dakota land, which includes the main Agricultural Experiment Sta�on at Fargo. There are 268 Agricultural Experiment Sta�on buildings and storage facili�es at the main sta�on and eight research extension centers across the state, and 18,488 acres dedicated to agricultural research. Dedicated to outreach efforts, the NDSU Extension Service conducts a rigorous educa�on program in agriculture, human development, nutri�on and youth and community development through its county, area and state staff. During the fiscal year ending September 2008, the Extension Service’s ambi�ous 4-H Club ac�vi�es, day camp and a�er school programs involved more than 27,170 face-to-face contacts with North Dakota young people. A total of 7,086 youth are ac�ve in organized 4-H Clubs. During the same period, the Extension Service had 536,614 face-to-face contacts with adult learners across the state. Members of NCAA Division I, the talented Bison athle�c teams have enjoyed a long tradi�on of excellence. The student-athletes compete in first-class facili�es—the Fargodome, Newman Outdoor Field, Ellig Sports Complex and Bison Sports Arena.

An energe�c student body

The NDSU student body is a talented, dedicated and enthusias�c blend of interna�onal and ethnic backgrounds. During the fall of 2008, undergraduate and graduate students came from all 53 North Dakota coun�es, 46 other states and the District of Columbia. The university currently has more than 960 interna�onal students from 81 countries. NDSU has bilateral student exchange agreements with ins�tu�ons in Australia, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. There also are memorandums of understanding with other countries such as Belize, China, Malaysia and Thailand. NDSU students find it is easy to make friends and get involved with campus life. They can par�cipate in more than 200 student organiza�ons to develop personal and social rela�onships, explore new ideas, learn about people from around the world and augment their coursework. The groups focus on academics, special interests, service, performing and visual arts, religion and recrea�on. There also are intercultural groups, honor socie�es, fraterni�es and sorori�es.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is o�en listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an All-American City by the Na�onal Civic League in 2000, Fargo-Moorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Sea�le. About 187,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Coun�es. Accolades for the community come from a variety of sources. For instance, listed NDSU and Fargo as number five in an ar�cle called “Top College Towns for Jobs.” The research used U.S. metropolitan sta�s�cal area data and examined job growth using data from Moody’s A report from the American Lung Associa�on names Fargo-Moorhead as the best city

for ozone pollu�on, short-term par�cle pollu�on and long-term par�cle pollu�on. Fargo-Moorhead has topped a list of 72 areas studied by Earth Day Network and ranked for environmental health. Researchers looked at more than 200 indicators, with Fargo the best in air quality, drinking and surface water, and toxins and waste. In addi�on, Fargo-Moorhead ranked 15th on the “Best U.S. Ci�es for Job Growth” published on

A campus commi�ed to the future Advances have come and con�nue on many fronts across the university, and the people of NDSU are op�mis�cally looking to the challenges and opportuni�es of the future. The university has transformed, moved to the next level and its stature has increased among the na�on’s land-grant universi�es.

NDSU AT A GLANCE Gene Taylor, Athletic Director


When he came to North Dakota State University in the summer of 2001, Gene Taylor inherited a department surrounded by a whirlwind of ques�ons. In his first year as the director of athle�cs at North Dakota State, Taylor was asked to spearhead a comprehensive study and evalua�on of the Bison athle�c department. He has guided the athle�cs program through the unpredictable waters of reclassifica�on to NCAA Division I from Division II. One of most important pieces of the transi�on was securing conference affilia�ons for all 16 sports. The Bison are currently members of The Summit League, Missouri Valley Football Conference and Western Wrestling Conference. Taylor also played an instrumental part of forming the Great West Football Conference in February 2004, an affilia�on that gave the Bison football program an immediate home in Division I. He served as chair of the coaches commi�ee. Also on the reclassifica�on checklist: fundraising. Taylor spearheaded an increase in the Bison athle�cs budget, which has more than doubled from $5 million in his first year to almost $12.5 million for the 2008-09 season. He was recognized for his success by the Na�onal Associa�on of Collegiate Directors of Athle�cs in June 2008. Taylor was one of 29 recipients of the AstroTurf AD of the Year award as the Football Championship Subdivision Central Region winner.

Quality of life in the heartland is rarely matched. In its annual crime survey, CQ Press has ranked North Dakota the safest state in the na�on in 11 of the last 15 years. There’s a li�le bit of something for everyone in North Dakota. The state is home to a variety of cultures, including Scandinavian, Ukrainian, German, Germans from Russia, and Na�ve American.

iscover the spirt of North Dakota and unlock the fascina�ng stories from the state’s legendary past. The glow of the breathtaking Northern Lights shines brightly on the paths taken by historical legends George Armstrong Custer, Theodore Roosevelt, Si�ng Bull, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sakakawea along with the state’s contemporary heroes, Lawrence Welk, Peggy Lee, Roger Maris, Phil Jackson, Virgil Hill, Rick Helling, Darin Erstad and Travis Hafner. From the se�lers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will con�nue to be the strength of North Dakota. The state is home to some of the richest soil in the world. North Dakota is a prime exporter of agricultural products, taking the trophy in produc�on of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the produc�on of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, len�ls, sunflowers, barley and oats. About 10 percent of North Dakota’s area, the band of rich soil 40 miles west of the Red River, is o�en called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock produc�on is second only to wheat in North Dakota’s agricultural economy. It is most important in western North Dakota where the land is less suited for grain crops. The main livestock are beef, dairy ca�le and hogs. The importance of ca�le ranching has been challenged in recent years by the development of North Dakota’s tremendous oil and coal reserves. Energy is the state’s thirdlargest industry. Since the late 1970s and the infamous Arab oil embargo, North Dakota has been in the forefront of the na�onal effort to provide more oil and gas from domes�c sources. North Dakota has one of the world’s largest deposits of lignite coal. Among coal-producing states, North Dakota ranks ninth and produces 3 percent of the na�on’s output.

orth Dakota State University’s athletics program is rich in tradition. Its storied history includes national, regional, and conference championships and champions. On top of these athletic achievements are numerous academic championships earned by our student-athletes. As we strive to continue the championship tradition of Bison Athletics, we must always seek the highest of ethical conduct. North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

ARE YOU A REPRESENTATIVE OF NDSU’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS? You are a representative of NDSU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster”, if you meet any of the following conditions:  You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers).  You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization.  You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU.  You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled studentathletes.  You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families.  You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU. NOTE: Please remember that once you become a booster, you retain that identity indefinitely. WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE?


A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll.


WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY? Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from:  Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, e-mails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.  Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend. Please contact the NDSU Compliance Office at (701) 231-5696 if you need a specific NCAA rule interpretation.

prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution.  Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches. NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to e-mail, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS  You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives.  You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU.  You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/her relatives or friends to visit campus.  You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp.  You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate.  You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES  You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends.  You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.

 You may not provide student-athletes with any special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation).  You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls.  You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to studentathletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office.  You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home.  You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product.  You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete.  You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU. WHAT CAN YOU DO?  Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member.  View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest.  Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff.  Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
